Jägermeister has announced that its next Ice Cold studio session is to take place at London’s Strongroom Studios on January 17th, and is set to feature British heavy metal band Malefice and footballer Marcus Hahnemann.
The Ice Cold studio sessions unite rock bands and icons from the metal world in a recording studio, whereby they ‘break the ice’ by working on a track together.
US international goalkeeper Hahnemann, who currently plays for Everton, is a well known heavy metal fan, but this will be the first time he has ever taken his passion for metal into a recording studio. “Today (December 12th) I have come down to London for the Arsenal game. Getting ready for the game always includes some heavy rock to get me going. But I can't stop thinking about when I am coming back down here in a few weeks to record with Malefice! So hopefully my love of music and their love of football with translate to a really cool track,” he commented.
Dale Butler, vocalist with Reading band Malefice, also added: “We’re really stoked to be recording a special track with Marcus Hahnemann. Given that before every game he listens to Five Finger Death Punch or Slipknot to 'get himself psyched' for the game has to be a pretty good indicator of where his musical tastes are. We even have a track 'Outnumbered/Outgunned' on our album 'Awaken The Tides' which is all about that rush of adrenaline you get when you're with your mates at the terraces in the away end on a Saturday afternoon, so this collaboration of football and metal is gonna be something you won't want to miss”
The collaboration will be streamed exclusively on the Jägermeister UK Facebook page from February 1st 2012 (www.facebook.com/jagermeisteruk) as well as photos and extended footage of the recording process.
